What do new homeowners need to know about their air conditioner?

July 20, 2018

Being a first-time homeowner is really exciting and possibly a little daunting, too. Between furnishing the space and the new responsibilities of being a homeowner, there’s likely a lot on your mind as you settle into your new house.

That’s why Edington Heating & Cooling Inc wants to provide some simple tips to make sure you understand your air conditioning system and how to keep it working smoothly this summer.

What do you need to know?

  1. Understand Your System—Review the equipment itself to know the make and model of your air conditioner. This will be useful if you have any concerns or problems, need to look up the manual or contact a technician for additional help.
  2. Look at the Thermostat—One of the greatest ways to save money on your energy bill is to monitor the temperature in your home and adjust when you will be away from home. Some homes have programmable thermostats, which means you can arrange a schedule throughout the week and not worry about regularly adjusting the temps. If you don’t have a programmable thermostat, you may want to consider buying one.
  3. Find a Qualified Technician—Even if you don’t need service or repair off the bat, it’s wise to have a technician or HVAC company selected in case of an emergency. From ongoing maintenance to repairs, Edington Heating & Cooling Inc can help with all your air conditioner issues or questions.
  4. Remember the Air Filter—We know life gets busy, so it’s useful to set a reminder or make a note that your air filter should be replaced when it gets dirty. When an air filter becomes dirty, it makes your cooling system work harder which decreases efficiency and increases your energy costs.
